What is freedom of speech

Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]

I like to get a good definition about freedom of speech. I know that everything we do has a limit.
When you are driving a car, you can not drive in any speed you want , there are speed limit signs everywhere you go and the reason behind this is that if you drive with a highly speed you may hurt people's feeling by accidents.

Therefore, the freedom of speech should have a limit and at least it should not insult other religions.
